Concrete mixes use different materials to effectively give similar properties. They all include a mixture of, cement, water, sand & stone.

Each of our concrete mixes is mixed using only the best quality materials and each conforms to BS EN 206/BS 8500.

Depending on the project you are planning on using the concrete for, this will determine the mix you will need.

The following concrete types that are listed on this page are examples of the type that may be used for the relevant projects.

How to understand the Concrete Codes

P + NUMBER

The number after the P in concrete types eg: P180 is the weight in kilograms of concrete per cubic metre. The higher the number that follows the P the more cement the mix contains, giving stronger concrete.

C + NUMBER

The number followed by a C represents what they call the Newton Strength. For example, C25/30 means that the newton strength will be between 25 & 30 within 28 days. The larger the newton number the stronger the concrete.

Should you require special qualities for your concrete we can also add alternate materials and chemicals into your mix.
